I have a 2004 moots smoothie Al, that I dont beat on at all...I baby this bike. I cracked first on the rear triangle, where the right chainstay meets the pivot assembly. This was a known weak spot on these bikes so I wasnt all that surprised to have it happen.I had it fixed, and began riding again. I was very surprised to find a 3 inch long crack on the front triangle along the weld where the downtube, seattube, and BB assembly come together!! This happened only 3 rides after the rear triangle was repaired. I never thought I would say this, but I wish I would have bought a trek or cannondale instead of a moots!!!! Because they offer lifetime warranties on all their frames!! I dont understand why moots only offers a 2 year warranty on Al products!?!?! It just doesnt make sense. Its like they are building a weak product and they know it!!!
